DUQUESNE WHISTLE BY BOB DYLAN IN D Capo 1

The opening song from his “Tempest” album. A couple of the chords on the other two 
submissions are not quite right – but thanks to them for most of the work

The song is in E flat – much easier and sounds better in D capo 1

The intro is played on slide guitar, but still sounds good on an ordinary one. The 
positions in the tab are the actual ones on the fretboard with the capo behind the first fret.

If you find the G D riff difficult to play and sing along (I do!) then try Dsus4 in 
place of G.
